Present Future Continous Tense (Bahasa)



Will + Be + V-ing


Present Future Continuous digunakan untuk menyatakan bahwa seseorang sedang melakukan sesuatu/ada suatu aktifitas yang sedang terjadi pada waktu tertentu di masa yang akan datang (future):

Perhatikan contoh situasi berikut:
-     Kevin is going to attend an English class this afternoon. The class begins at 2.00 pm and ends at 3.30 pm. Sarah wants to see Kevin the same afternoon and wants to know what time to come to his house.
Sarah   :  There’s something I need to talk to you. Is it ok if I come to your house at about 3.00 pm?
Kevin  :  No, I will be having an English class then.

Pada jam 3.00 sore nanti Kevin masih berada di kelas sedang belajar Bahasa Inggris


Contoh Lain:
-     Don’t call me between 8.00 and 9.00. I will be watching football match on TV.
-     At 9 o’clock tomorrow morning, I will be working in my office.
-     If you need to see me, I will be staying at Lucy’s house until Saturday.

Bentuk Continuous dari BE GOING TO adalah:   BE GOING TO + BE + V-ing
-     Don’t call me between 8.00 and 9.00. I am going to be watching football match on TV.
-     At 9 o’clock tomorrow morning, Se is going to be working in my office.
-     If you need to see him, He is going to be staying at Lucy’s house until Saturday.

Present Future Continuous juga bisa digunakan untuk menyatakan aktifitas secara keseluruhan (complete action), bukan proses yang sedang terjadi (action in progress):
-     I’ll be seeing my doctor this evening.
-     What time will your mother be arriving tomorrow?
-     I’m so tired, I will be sleeping by the time my husband comes home.

Pada contoh-contoh di atas, penggunaan WILL BE V-ing (Present Future Continuous) sama dengan penggunaan present continuous yang menyatakan waktu akan datang.

Jika kegiatan pada waktu yang akan datang (Future event) terjadi pada waktu yang tidak tentu di masa yang akan datang, maka penggunaan Present Future Continuous sama dengan Present Future:
-     Please be patient, Sarah will be coming soon.
-     Please be patient, Sarah will come soon.

Tidak ada kejelasan waktu kapan Sarah akan datang. Karena itu bisa menggunakan Present Future Continuous maupun Present Future
